Hello Ashley, if you're not a cash buyer, I would recommend contact a mortgage broker first to get pre-approved.

Ashley Porterfield answered:
Mobile homes typically need to be "attached" to land in order to qualify as a "real estate" and be sold by a Realtor in the local MLS. Would your mobile home be sold with land? Do you happen to know if it is on a permanent foundation? If not, it's normally considered personal property (similar to selling a used car). ... more

Trulia does not support For Sale By Owner listings. All listings on Trulia are generated by the listing Real estate agent; Trulia scans the MLS data base and posts that information to their web site. If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system ... more

Most Realtors haven't figured out that homes sell/rent so much faster with professional photos. It is not expensive at all to have photos taken and I suspect that most agents are just lazy or too broke to spend the money. ... more

Hi Justin,

Regardless of third party authorization, the offer should come to you first. Period. The third party authorization is for your Realtor or attorney to discuss paperwork to be submitted on your behalf for the shortsale. Your agent should not be submitting anything without your approval or knowledge,

Something sounds fishy to me if the Realtor is submitting an offer behind your back on your behalf.
I would demand that she bring that offer to your attention immediately.

Although you own the house on paper, the bank will be making the decision on whether or not to accept what is presented. I would say present no matter what offer comes in to get the ball rolling with the bank, but if you have no idea of the offer, still sounds fishy.

There are a whole host of problems with this. Address the offer first with your Realtor, see if that Realtor is also the selling agent... at that point, who is buying it?

simple answer is No. The Realtors commission is set by the signed Listing Agreement with the brokerage company. Closing costs are a separate paragraph to address in the Offer made by a buyer. A Seller generally just takes that into consideration based on what the offered amount is. ... more

J answered:
The distressed property market continues to influence housing values in just about every market. I experienced similar situations this year with buyers on two non-distressed properties. As a seller's agent I had to prove the value related to the houses to the buyer's agents, and I actually completed a BPO for an agent on one of the houses. Having showings is not enough in this market. I typically call all the agents who showed the properties and learn their buyer clients motivation, what is important to their client, and what can I do to negotiate a deal with them and their buyer. This is an outstanding opportunity for me to add credibility to a price and showcase features that an agent may have overlooked during a showing. I was also successful with negotiating the commission down on the other property by a .50% (both sides) resulting in a win/win situation for all involved parties. ... more

David Bolick answered:
Josh, the average person can't tell if a house has dryvit or not and as you probably know Dryvit is actually a product Company Name and not just a product. As Sally advised...the best thing to do is to contact a Home Inspector and either have him express his opinion on that specific issue or a full home inspection report and start off with the good news (hopefully) that you've repaired everything that a home inspector recommended in advance of selling. I wouldn't bring up an issue about dryvit unless you know for a fact you had a problem and addressed it. If you need any assistance, let me know and I'll be glad to help...I've been in the business for 36 years. ... more
